E4W - The net is not neutral: Teaching hidden biases in everyday Internet use

From Facebook’s filter bubble to Google’s inappropriate autocorrects, proprietary algorithms distort information and reinforce biases. Engage in active learning exercises from a successful workshop series that demonstrate to our learners the non-neutrality of the web, and discuss ways to incorporate digital literacy into your praxis. Bring your mobile device/laptop!

LE WEB N’EST PAS NEUTRE: ENSEIGNER LES PRÉJUGÉS CACHÉS DANS L’UTILISATION QUOTIDIENNE D’INTERNET

De la bulle de filtres de Facebook aux autocorrections inappropriées de Google, les algorithmes propriétaires faussent l’information et renforcent les biais. Participez à des exercices d’apprentissage actif à partir d’une série d’ateliers efficaces qui démontrent à nos apprenants la non-neutralité du Web et discutez des façons d’intégrer la culture numérique dans votre pratique. Apportez votre appareil/ordinateur portable!
